    I have started to suffer from lack of sound from this very reliable tv. On turning on, there is no sound, yet after waitinf to warm up for 10 mins, a very light touch on some part of the cabinet sometimes works and the sound returns, never ofcourse the same spot.

    Not being a techy person, does this indicate some kind of sound card on the way out!

    Its a bit large to put in the car, so any help before calling out someone would be great!

    Thanks

    It is probably a "dry" solder joint especially if mechanical vibration (tapping the set) restores the sound.
    I would advise against having a go yourself unless you are competent with a soldering iron and are comfortable handling electronic components...as well as the safety issues.
    It is worthwhile calling in an experienced TV engineer for an estimate.
